The guys also bring on Bravo’s “Top Chef” judge, Hugh Acheson. He was in New York City last month and hosted a round table chat where he created some incredible rum-infused food and drink recipes. With some help from Captain Morgan, Hugh is getting us ready for the summer.
Besides his role on Bravo’s “Top Chef”, Acheson is the author of the James Beard Foundation Award Winning Cookbook, “A New Turn in the South: Southern Flavors Reinvented for Your Kitchen”. Hugh is known reinventing dishes that take on southern flavors. He also owns four restaurants, including Atlanta’s Empire State South.
We caught up with Hugh to chat about his time in New York City, “Top Chef”, fatherhood, and what inspired him to become a chef.
